. speaker, on television tonight and reading about their congress tomorrow and seeing that we were able to act. not perfectly. but in a bipartisan fashion to try to take a step towards fiscal responsibility, fiscal stability, and, yes, caring for those who most need our help in this country. and so i urge my colleagues as the leader of my party in this congress you restructuringed uo survivors -- you urged us to support this legislation as an american who understands that our people believe that action is necessary. and i would urge all of us as we close this debate to do so in a way that brings us together not drive us apart. >> bret: house minority whip steny hoyer urging the passage of the bill. the debate time is almost up. republican ares not offering any more speakers and democrats still have a few more. we will be covering this until the big vote.d keep it right here on fox news channel. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. cal

congress that takes this up. presumably boehner will still be speaker. got to win a speakership election between now and then. no indication that he would lose that so he has the authority to make these promises of what the next congress will do because he'll be the guys in charming. he's trying to mollify the new york and new jersey congressmen who have been extremely heated. i mean this, has been very bitter, intraparty warfare over this issue over the last couple of hours. >> not like they will dribble it out as they go on. >> this at least gets them something up front, a down payment on what they are looking for, and from the tone of this press conference which is still going on right now, so we haven't heard all of it, it seems like some of these members are happy with the deal that they are being offered now. >> very good. eamon, thanks very much. >> just fascinating, bill, because the bigger the size of the sandy relief package, the sooner we hit the debt ceiling so these issues aren't related, and on that note house speaker cursing out the senate majority leader outside

a vote in the house. fortunately for john boehner. i think mr. boehner will be reelected speaker tomorrow after the swearing-in of the 113th congress. one thing very important going forward. let's say you cared about immigration or you want to talk about gun laws or want to talk about infrastructure. things like that. we're not going it do that for the next three or four months. we'll have the same conversation that we just had for the last 18 months which is, are we going to have the debt bill passed in time. are we going to have the government close down because of appropriation bills. are we going to cut spending because of the sequester. what we've done is many could press, and i think exacerbate the dysfunction here in this town. if you think that playing with the fiscal cliff was a big deal, i assure you if you talk to anyone serious playing with the debt ceiling is really playing with c-4. tracy: timothy, steve, maybe the 113th congress can do a better job when they get in on thursday. thank you both. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. ashley: the bar is pretty low. tra

so i want to get a short answer. this got done last night, 24 hours late but it got done. is congress dysfunctional? >> well, it's a very bumpy messy process. unless the speaker allows votes to happen like he did last night where he doesn't establish this rule that you have to have the majority of republicans in favor of something in the house, then it is going to be really hard to move forward with the people's business. but if the speaker does going forward, what he allowed to happen last night is just allow. it's not the republicans house or the democrats house. let the house vote. more republicans voting for something and fewer democrats. sometimes like last night, two democrats to every republicans voting for it. but the problem is the house republicans and this has been stated by nonpartisan. the house republicans are unwilling to compromise. a lot think compromise is a dirty word. they go back to districts and say they want things 100% their way. when you have divided government, one in control of congress, the only thing that stands in the way of divided government and dysfunc

, kelliy o'donnell is live with that. we have speaker boehner's office saying the speaker is committed to getting the sandy relief bill passed, but when? >> in talking to aides, they say they want to reassure members it will be his first priority in the new congress that begins tomorrow at noon. part of what has made this so painful and erupted with such surprise is that members of the house thought they would be voting on it before this congress ended and in part because you have seen how it can be difficult to get things done. after the senate worked to make it happen and part of the reaction you are seeing is what some call betrayal. a strong and personal word and that's what they are saying. feeling misled and they thaud they would be able to get this aid to the northeast, but so far it's not going to happen. part of this political distance takes place. $60.4 billion and new spending at a time when the big argument that is happening is about trying to reduce spending and the deficit. it's sort of looking at a ledger versus looking at the real world consequences that are happening in p
